The Accidentals
The Accidentals
With ODYSSEY, their extraordinary Sony Masterworks debut album, The Accidentals affirm their place among contemporary music’s most original and adventurous new bands. Multi-instrumentalists Sav Buist and Katie Larson – joined on stage and in the studio by drummer Michael Dause – have crafted a genre all their own, fueled by their uniquely limitless approach to musicality and songcraft. As its title suggests, ODYSSEY is built upon the foundation of real life experience through adversity and finding strength in vulnerability, their five-year journey having brought them to this cusp moment. Lyrically powerful songs like “Earthbound” and the potent title track see the band embracing their choice to lead an unconventional life with all its many surprising twists and turns.

Named among Yahoo Music’s “Top 10 Bands to Watch in 2017,” The Accidentals’ adventure began in their hometown of Traverse City, MI, when Larson, a sophomore cellist, and Buist, a junior violinist, were paired for a high school orchestra event. The gifted young musicians became fast friends and before long, bandmates. Having both grown up in musical families with professional pianists for fathers and vocalists for mothers, their shared influences bounced between classical, jazz, bluegrass, country, alt-rock, and the obscure.

Dubbing themselves after the musical notes that fall outside of a key signature, The Accidentals recorded and released a pair of independent albums in 2012 and 2013, the latter funded by a hugely successful Kickstarter. Their original songs revealed a band with wide-ranging influences but always true to their orchestral roots. National applause and attention followed, as did acclaimed collaborations with some fellow local artists and independent filmmakers. Other career highlights included scoring arrangements for a 75-piece orchestra to accompany them on their original songs as well as arranging pieces for an opera/dance production with Jennifer and Ryan Lott (Son Lux).

Music fans in Texas and beyond might recognize Jeff Bryant as the versatile keyboardist they’ve seen performing with Alpha Rev, Cory Morrow and Hudson Moore, playing rock and country with equal ease. But for the first time, Bryant is taking center stage, releasing his debut solo effort, Sleeping with the Lights On, on Feb. 9, 2018. The seven-track album showcases the work of an artist with strong songwriting skills, a resonant tenor and a warm, fluid pop/R&B sound, embellished with some cool jazz-funk. Influences from Stevie Wonder and D’Angelo to Bruce Hornsby and John Mayer can be heard within its grooves, but these songs are all original — and incredibly catchy.

Bryant, who wrote and produced all but one track himself (with vocal production by Rachel Loy), says of the collection, “I like to think of it as a pop record that also delivers the raw, organic vibe you find on rock and Americana records.”

For those who need a definition, that should work perfectly. Better yet, just take a listen. And enjoy the groove.
